happening. we spoke to a woman who was there in 2010 and she said she learned some lessons from that about where the best spot is to actually see her favorite players. we ended up early at civic center and this year i am not missing a minute, we went to 49 regular season games and we went to every season game with the giants. >> reporter: and a lot of people said they have learned something from 2010 when they had the parade through san francisco and the civic center is obviously the place to be. they started the parade to actually see some players. there are some other differences, players on cable cars 2010 and they are on convertibles. we come back here now that this float has given you a great
shot and again we have seen crowds over on market and they are lining the streets just to get a look at the floats coming through and they are getting into the flavor and the fever of the giants and if you want to get a front row seat, you may want to start heading down now. claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 morning news. take a look at the map it does start there and wind up at san francisco's silver plaza. don't forget cal and bart are adding extra services and if you do plan to drive, mark kept and mission streets will be closed from 9:30 this morning all the way to 5:00

cloudy overall the temperatures can wait, it is not even moving, this system is slowing down tremendously and that is why the forecast model bridges it in by 5:00 than could be some light rain or drizzle by then. again i think it is too fast. there is a system of that is slowly coming through and there is not enough for me to say let's speed things up. we did one south an advance of this system coming in but where is the rain, we can't pick it up yet, it is close but not there yet and it is a long --
it is a lodge way from getting here. further north better opportunity. it will lift cloudy showers and this is more clouds than anything else and then we get it out of here and it's sunny and warmer for the weekend. we are just moments away from the start of the parade and they are making their way early. >> we will talk about how transit agencies. i just snagged these girls who are headed to get to bart and they just purchased tickets. they are smart ladies because they had some tickets two years ago and they have the kinks
